At MRT we have specialized in manufacturing equipment for recovering mercury from electronic waste such as fluorescent powder from lamps, batteries, switches, rectifiers but also from sludge, medical and dental waste, powders, catalysts, military waste, and a variety of mercury contaminated metals as well as production waste from various industries.

At MRT we can provide a full range of recycling machines for fluorescent lamps of all sorts (tubes as well as CFL lamps), HID lamps as well as CRT monitors and TV screens. All of which are efficient equipment in the process of recycling those products.

At MRT, we believe in recovering and reuse of by-products from lamp waste such as glass, metals, plastics etc. We have been manufacturing lamp recycling equipment and mercury recovery systems for more than 30 years and we are convinced that it is possible to lower the mercury pollution rate around the world.


The mercury is recovered to well over 99% in a safe way for both environment and workers.

Innovative aspects (ecologic, social and economic)

Environmental Aspects - Less mercury in our environment
Social Aspects (related to the work conditions) - The working conditions are safe due to a ventilation process with several steps, including active carbon.
